When you sit all day working at a computer screen, as I do, it is essential that you have sufficient office chair lumbar support. According to Wikipedia, nine out of ten adults have experienced back pain at some point in their life.
I certainly fall into those who have experienced debilitating back pain in my life. For me, it all started when I was a teenager and I started experiencing back pain after being checked into the boards playing high school hockey.
I don’t care which office chair that you own, enhancing that office chair with some type of lumbar support can certainly add to the long-term health of your back.
I’ve missed days of work due to back pain over the years so being cognizant and proactive when it comes to the health of my back is important to me.
I spent a while searching for a low profile and highly-rated office chair lumbar support accessory. The one that I finally purchased is called the OPTP Original McKenzie Super Roll.
The reason I settled on the OPTP Original McKenzie Super Roll for my office chair lumbar support accessory is the fact that it is not big and bulky like others I have come across.
Another major factor for me was that on Amazon the reviews are high – as seen in the graphic on the left. Nearly 80% of the reviews are either 4 or 5 stars which is pretty stellar for almost 2000 reviews.
There are a number of different flavors of McKenzie back and neck support products available but this one, the OPTP Original McKenzie Super Roll, was the best for my particular back support needs. It is very simple to use as you can see in the video below.
You can check out my YouTube video below of me removing it from the package and setting it up in my home office.
